Japanese artist Isana Yamada has created the most gorgeous sculptures of whales that we’ve ever seen. Made from clear resin, the body of each whale contains its own little underwater world of rocks, shipwrecks and more. They have an ethereal beauty, but they actually represent a deeper meaning. There are 6 sculptures in total, which are arranged in a circle when exhibited.
They represent the 6 realms in Buddhist cosmology… the human realm, the animal realm, the ghost realm, the asura, hell and the heavenly realm. But, even if you know nothing about Buddhism, the beauty of these whales can’t be denied. Take a look!
